What is Hypnotherapy & Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT)?
What is hypnotherapy?
We make our best decisions in life when we’re totally relaxed and we have all the information we need at our disposal to make an informed choice. For example, you wouldn’t buy a new house without first doing your research – looking at the area you wish to move to, finding a mortgage you’re comfortable with, knowing how much you have to spend etc. And yet so often we look to change years of our learned behaviour – over eating, binge drinking, smoking, whatever it may be – just by reading a self-help book or two. In essence we try to bring logic to irrational problems, but trying to change emotional problems with rational common sense very often doesn’t work. For example, if someone has a phobia of chickens no amount of rational common sense telling them that chickens aren’t to be feared is going to change their fear!
Under hypnotherapy our brainwave frequency slows down to something called the Theta State (around 4 to 7 pulses per second). In this trance like state you’ll experience a heightened state of relaxation, imagination and suggestibility which allows you to connect with everything you store in your subconscious mind (which remembers everything) and find all the resources you need there to help you change. Various research estimates that our unconscious minds process around 11 million pieces of information per second, compare that to our conscious brain which only processes around 40 pieces of information and it’s no wonder we have extreme difficulty changing our unwanted behaviours at a conscious level!
Young children from around two to six years operate predominantly in theta state which is why they have such vivid imaginations. Their visualisations are so powerful they believe they can be anything and they seem to soak up all experiences around them like sponges, taking in everything they think, feel, hear and see. Theta connects us to dreams and imagination with little or no critical thinking or judgment. As adults we are our own worst critics and judges so it makes sense to use hypnotherapy to get us into that theta state where we can allow ourselves to be who we really want to be without fear of criticism or judgment.
During hypnotherapy you may feel like you’re asleep but you’ll be alert and taking everything in. The conscious critical function, which acts as a filter for the mind’s activity is dampened down; we lose the ‘chatter’ inside our mind. Without this you can feel less self-conscious as the connection to your rational and logical mind is lessened and you’re more open and able to connect with yourself. Hypnosis helps us work to a high level of consciousness and uses the power of positive suggestion to help us change our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
What is Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT)?
Developed by world renowned celebrity therapist, Marisa Peer, RTT recognises that clients are time-starved and in pain and therefore want quick results so RTT works in rapid time regression is used to find the root cause of your issue and free you from it forever.
What are the benefits of RTT?
RTT works with the subconscious mind to:
How is RTT different from traditional hypnotherapy?
During an RTT session regression is used to help you find out the true root cause of the issue. We go back to three or four different scenes from your past which are then linked together to discover how they have contributed to the issue you’re currently facing. We all experience things differently so when we go back to those past situations under hypnotherapy we work together to put different perceptions on them to free you from any past pain.
Following this, a personalised recording is then made to help eliminate old negative beliefs and create positive new ones. This recording is tailored to you and your needs and you’re required to listen to it for 28 days following the session to fully embed the new beliefs.
RTT is different to hypnotherapy because it’s tailored specifically to you and your needs, it gets to the root cause of the issue in one single session by revisiting several scenes from your past to build a picture of why you are the way you are today and it provides you with a personalised recording to take away with you to embed new beliefs.
With traditional hypnotherapy you’ll have a series of sessions which aren’t always tailored to your needs, it doesn’t revisit several scenes from your past to help you understand the ‘why’ (some hypnotherapists don’t revisit your past at all) and you don’t get anything to take away with you to help reinforce new beliefs.
Having worked both as a traditional hypnotherapist and an RTT therapist I can definitely say that RTT produces much better results.
In a nutshell how does RTT and hypnotherapy help?
Our subconscious mind has all the resources it needs to heal itself; RTT and hypnotherapy connects with this subconscious mind to access these resources and bring about positive change.
